Also described in detail are all the national variations of the Kalashnikov rifles, including the Bulgarian, Chinese, Egyptian, East German, Hungarian, Iraqi, North Korean, Polish, Romanian, and Yugoslavian manufactured Kalashnikov rifles in both 7.62 and 5.45 caliber. A separate chapter describes all clones of the Kalashnikov system from the Belgian FNC through the Israeli Galil to the Swiss STg.90 series.
Other chapters include: 1)a complete history of the rifle's development, 2)a short biography of Mikhail Kalashnikov, 3)descriptions and use of purpose-built telescopic sights for the Kalashnikov rifles, 4)accessories and tools issued to the soldier, 5)ammunition carriers from vests to pouches, and 5)various types of Soviet and Russian ammunition. Also described are the Soviet and other 6)national sniper rifles and 7)the new Russian An-94, the replacement for the AK-74.
